Mel Kiper (whom I can't decide if he really knows anything or not) has Albert going at 1.5.  Seems like an awfully big jump to me, but whatever.  He has all the other OTs gone before we draft.  But he has Jeff Otah going at 1.19.

If we can jump up 4-5 spots and get him, do we try it?  SHOULD we try it?

I've read that top 5 for Albert thing a few places: PFW laid out a scenario where he went to KC, IIRC...  

Anyway, I don't see the value of trading up for Otah, who IMO is RT only.  If we retain Starks, he's RT, if not, Colon.  LT is the need.  And with 6 picks, I think any trades need to go down rather than up.

Meh...just a thought.  I'm just really concerned about these projections that we'll have to reach and keep our fingers crossed to get any oline value at 23; or just switch to some other position for our first pick.  Otah seems like the one guy within reach that might be worth it, but if he doesn't fill the need then we shouldn't do it.  I'd love a trade-down, but it seems hard to believe we'll be able to do that.

If there gone get one in the 2nd or 3rd or 4th.  Take the BPA in rnd,s 1 and 2.  This could be another LB like Groves.  19 more days and we will know.
